Poll: Americans say health care is most important issue


With the fate of the Senate health care bill uncertain at best, a new poll finds Americans ranking it one of the country's top issues.

According to a Bloomberg poll, health care was listed as the top issue at 35%, more than twice as much as any other issue.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has delayed the vote until Senator John McCain recovers from surgery for a blood clot.

If McCain isn't there, the bill certainly won't pass.

And of those 1,000 surveyed, 60 percent remain pessimistic, saying it's unrealistic any legislation will pass in the next few years that both lowers premiums and leads to more people with coverage.

Prior to its most recent modification, the Congressional Budget Office stated 22 million more people would be left uninsured by the Senate's bill.
